Having been fired from 'SNL' in 1995 along with fellow comedic legend Chris Farley, Sandler recently spoke to yet another notable alum, Norm MacDonald, who asked Sandler why he never returned to host an episode.
Although we don't know what's going to happen to CBS' 'The Late Late Show' after Craig Ferguson steps down from the gig later this year, comedian Norm Macdonald sure knows what he wants to happen. He wants that job! Mainly because the former 'SNL' star thinks it's kind of an easy position to fill. Could he possibly be right?
It'll always be a shame to us that Norm MacDonald never took off the way Will Ferrell did following 'Saturday Night Live.' Both great 'Saturday Night Live' stars and breakout performers, yet MacDonald never found the film success or popularity of Ferrell in any of his comedies. But, you know what Will Ferrell never had? His own talk show on TBS!
